MMS team needs to know within 24 hours if you would like them to download data. E-mail Drew Turner or Allison Jaynes if you would like them to collect data in a specific region/time for conjunction studies.

Some activity but fairly nominal levels.

ACE Solar proton density:
91 and Sunspot AR2571 has a beta-gamma complexity which means that there is at a slightly higher chance for an M-class solar flare. Currently it looks like if we were so lucky for it to produce a CME, it may be Earth directed. There are a few more larger sunspot regions which are coming around the disk and may produce Earth directed CMEs in a few days giving a potential arrival time of about 1 week from now. This is all speculative at the moment but stay tuned!

kp = 3 with a 24 hour max of kp = 4

The high speed stream has reached the Earth and the solar wind velocity is expected to stay high until about August 12th according to the WSA-ENLIL models housed at SWP NOAA. However, if Bz continues to fluctuate we may not expect a geomagnetic storm associated with the HSS. Hopefully though we'll get some nice substorm activity.
